About the employer

NWS Motors Services was founded in 2006 to fill an empty space in the market for engines for Land Rover, Range Rover and Jaguar Vehicles. More people were having engine problems with their Land Rovers, Range Rovers and Jaguars but no garage was offering affordable solutions to put these vehicles back on the road. NWS is now Europe’s largest independent Land Rover, Range Rover and Jaguar engine rebuilder. We recondition, remanufacture, rebuild and re-fit all Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) engines.
